As part of a general agreement with other interested stakeholders, the Chestertown Spy has agreed to discontinue bugging their readers for their annual donation, effective at midnight on October 25.
The planned cancelation of the campaign was a clear indication that many readers, many of whom read the Spy daily, would rather not be bugged to contribute to this extremely local news and arts education project.
Chestertown Spy editor Jim Dissette agrees with the decision. “While one might say that the Chestertown Spy is in the business of bugging its readers with important public affairs and the arts, we understand that our annual request for support, like all fundraising these days, is exhausting for all involved, but so important for the community.”
That said, Dissette quickly pointed out that there are two more days to donate before the campaign shuts down. Electronic donations can be made here.
